Does anyone know the position of using unattended audio recording devices in the UK with regard to GDPR, Data Privacy and other legislation, please? We intend to seed transects with AudioMoths in the UK outback and it is possible passing conversations may be recorded? Since we are intending to use proprietry pollinator identification software without 'listening' to the recordings, we are not interested in anything said, other than filtering it out; but the passers-by might be concerned at being 'bugged'?
Any pointers or advice gratefully received. Has anyone else run into this issue?
